Lawd, have mercy!
A bitch is busy and overwhelmed with all the to-dos mounting up on my list of shit to do.
For the love of all bitchitude, my ass has been too busy to bitch!
I know…it’s beyond shocking (wink).
A choice pondering...
This bitch heard the news that the Supreme Court has ruled against choice this week and was alarmed. What alarms me the most is that I find myself debating a medical procedure when this precedent is about so much more.
I’ve said it before but, fuck it, I’ll say it again...this bitch does not belong to a sect of liberals that meet in a dark wood and chant spells calling for more abortions.
My activism in my community is based on education and creating a healthy dialogue about sex so that we are all empowered to make the right decisions for us.
I believe that those decisions should be made between the individual and their medical provider.
And though I find the idea of any court stepping into a medical relationship bizarre…and the unsaid indictment within these rulings that doctors who perform abortions are blood hungry beasts beyond insulting…this battle is about choice and we must all struggle against accepting the premise of the anti-choice arguments.
Valuing a culture of life…means educating the public about risks, diseases, how our bodies work, what healthy sex, what pleasure is, what medicines do what and why some medicines exist.
It does not mean raising our youth in a world of denial, myth, fear and ignorance.
In choice there is power…and that is what these people fear.
Through education…we find health and that is what they seek to deny.
Through sex education we encourage mature behavior and decisions…and that just will not do, now will it?
And why won’t that do?
Why do they fear intelligence?
Why do they encourage ignorance and the risky behavior that follows?
Why are they celebrating?
And what the fuck happened to all that "settled law" bullshit?
Stari decisis, my black ass!
Lawd, give me strength.
Mmmmhmm, it’s well past time we start asking why these motherfuckers are dedicating so much time towards denying access to medical procedures and so little time towards educating people and promoting sexual health.
Who benefits from a world without choice and sex education?
I already know who suffers.
